Back 2 Blogging

It's been a little while since I have blogged. I have been busy and working alot, and not had very much scrapbooking or crafting time. I have been trying to work on things for the upcoming craft show, but haven't accomplished much.
I did take some time to conquer 3 Martha Stewart recipes. I made chocolate glazed pumpkin cookies, cranberry scones, and vanilla vanilla cupcakes. They all actually turned out really really good. The cupcakes were hands down the BEST I have ever tasted. I only took pictures of the scones, but I plan on making some more of the cupcakes soon and will take some pictures. The scones are wrapped in food tissue paper from Martha Stewart's line at Michael's. And if your not a fan of fresh cranberries, I made one batch with about 3/4 cup of chocolate chips instead of cranberries. DELICIOUS!

Miss. Perfect

I had a great time working on Sketch #13 for Pink Sketches. The sketch was sponsored byMaking Memories. They sent each of us designers a ton of great products to use for our layouts, and I thought one of my Martha Stewart pictures would be great to use with them.
So here is my take on Sketch #13 using all Making Memories products.

I also took a stab at making some Christmas cards. These are my first cards ever! Now that I kind of have the feel for it, I can't wait to make more.

Glitz and Glitter

I have been glittering ornaments like a mad woman over the past week, getting ready for the craft show. I've done quite a few, and decided that spray adhesive is a lot faster than regular glue. Here are some pictures of my progress. All glitter is by Martha Stewart. I highly recommend it, it is very fine and looks amazing! Check back tomorrow for a new layout, and some Christmas cards. Have a great weekend.

Election Day!

Today should turn out to be a day of exciting events and surprises. I have the day off of work and plan on spending it at home with CNN on, cleaning my room, and crafting polymer clay ornaments for the craft show that is coming up next month. I'll try to post some pictures later today of my progress. 
Hope everyone gets out and Rocks the Vote!

Pink Sketch #12

There is another great sketch over at Pink Sketches. This sketch is sponsored by Riff Raff Designs, and if you participate you get a chance to win your own Riff Raff Tree. So head over toPink Sketches and join in on the fun, I am sure you have a ton of great Halloween pictures you need to scrap!!

Here is my take on Sketch #12. I used Pink Paislee's Vintage Moon Collection, which I love. Some chipboard letters from Joann's (not sure of the manufacturer), and of course my Riff Raff Tree.
